Rumor has it that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will replace the volume on/off button with an action button that can be customized to the user’s preferred function. The action button is also a button that is also installed on Apple Watch Ultra released in 2022.
It is reported that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max can be set not only to turn on/off the traditional silent mode, but also to set the action button to launch applications such as the camera, flashlight, and Masu voice memo.

Then, iOS 17 beta 7, which was just released on August 23, 2023, adds a new haptic feedback pattern when users turn silent mode on and off, as discovered by Apple-linked website 9to5Mac. As a result, when the user presses the action button, it seems that turning on/off silent mode can be understood more clearly through vibration. Until iOS 16, there was distinct haptic feedback when silent mode was on, but no haptic feedback when silent mode was off.
According to 9to5Mac, the newly added haptic feedback in iOS 17 beta 7 generates a “vibration pattern that feels like you’ve been tapped once hard” when mute mode is turned off. In the case of the corresponding volume on/off button, it would have been possible to specify whether the mute mode was on or off by the appearance of the button, but if this was replaced by the action button, it would be possible to specify whether the mute mode would not be on Or stop once the button appears.
Therefore, it is believed that a new vibration pattern has been added so that mute mode on/off can be selected through haptic feedback.
Additionally, 9to5Mac said, “There is a possibility that a new button for silent mode will be added to Control Center. I’m not surprised,” and suggested changes in the UI to indicate turning silent mode on/off. , which has become difficult to confirm visually.
